Contribution to fund services for local veterans
People’s United Bank recently contributed $25,000 to United Way of Long Island’s Mission United in support of local veterans.
Mission United provides funding for services and resources to Long Island military veterans and their families focusing on employment services, education, financial services, health and housing support. The need for these services is particularly significant on Long Island as over 100,000 veterans live in our communities.
“People’s United Bank is proud to continue our legacy of supporting the needs of the Long Island community. We know our support will impact veterans who are seeking workforce training and placement, and other much-needed services,” stated Steven G. Santino, Senior Vice President, Senior Growth Manager of People’s United Bank.
“We’re incredibly appreciative of People’s United Bank for their repeated support of United Way of Long Island’s veterans programs. In addition, People’s United Bank employees are active participants in the Mission United T-Shirt Campaign. Every dollar raised is critical to ensuring the men and women who served our country receive the career training and mental health resources needed to live a comfortable and sustainable life on Long Island,” said Theresa A. Regnante, President & CEO of United Way of Long Island.
